Sonic explorer Daniel Lanois has just announced a series of North American live dates. The renowned musician and producer will be performing in support of his groundbreaking new album Flesh and Machine which has been Juno nominated for ‘Instrumental Album’ of the year. “Many thanks to the Juno folks for taking the time to listen to what I regard to be some of my most adventurous work”.

Examining the ever evolving relationship between musicians and technology, Flesh And Machine inventively takes organic instrumentation and alters the sounds with an assortment of recording technologies in real time. The record stylistically references the classic Brian Eno albums Lanois worked on while also charting new ground with it’s intense hypnotic rhythms and evocative soundscapes.

In a live setting, Lanois further explores the relationship between musician and technology, inventively bringing his studio process to the live setting in an absolutely riveting manner. “What I do in my laboratory is seldom witnessed but now all this is going to change,” he promised the Wall Street Journal recently. “I see this work as an opportunity for me to be part of a new congregation.”
